How many more will it take before they reaxminne their gun policies?

Multiple fatalities have been reported and a suspect is in custody after a shooting at a Texas high school.

Santa Fe High School was placed on lockdown following an "incident involving an active shooter" on Friday morning, according to the school district. Assistant Principal Cris Richardson told reporters that one suspect had been arrested.

Law enforcement sources told local news outlets that at least eight people had been killed.
Not really shocking, which is a tragedy in itself.

Awful but no desire among a large group to change policies for gun control

You need to google what a strawman argument is.

I'm not sure that's ever likely to happen.

Not until the current generation of teenagers is in government anyways.
And probably not even then

Guns don't kill people, video games do.

It's a cycle that seems unbreakable.

When you can legally pop into many local shops with an AR-15 slung over your shoulder, your country has a problem.

Ironically, the share price of gun companies will surge

Suspect is in custody so I’m wondering does that imply it’s a caucasian rather than African American or other minority

If they didn't after Sandy Hook, they never will.
